The good news is that type 2 diabetes, the most common type, is largely preventable. Whether you are newly diagnosed with diabetes, have had it for years or are trying to prevent it, this seminar is for you. Learn about the disease that affects 29 million Americans and an estimated 86 million (roughly 1/3rd of American adults) who are pre-diabetic and may not even know it. According to the American Diabetes Association, preventing and/or managing the disease is so important because diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and kidney failure in adults, it increases risk for heart disease, can lead to circulation problems and is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S. This seminar will focus on the diet and lifestyle changes and tips that may help you prevent the onset of diabetes or manage the condition with greater success.
